(1) San Diego’s NBC affiliate reports HBO is treating fans to a free Game of Thrones tattoo:
At the exhibit, in the buzzing Gaslamp District just outside of Comic-Con, artists from the San Diego tattoo shop “Left Hand Black” offered free tattoos of symbols from the series.
Two tattoo artists were paid by HBO to offer the unique opportunity to die-hard fans.
“Yesterday I did 20,” one artist told NBC 7.
The interest is strong, with about 40 fans per day are getting inked up. The line outside is first come first serve, but fanatics said it was worth the wait.
“I slept out on the concrete; I was waiting outside at 9 p.m. last night,” said “Game of Thrones” fan John Stumpf.
